We offer two main classes: Climbing Movement Series, and Indoor Lead. These are group classes. Some classes do have pre-requisites so check the class descriptions before signing-up. All class dates are on the events calendar.
Climbing Movement Series
In the Movement Series class you will gain an understanding of balance; the types and quality of balance; the different types of holds; foot placement; body position; and how to combine all of that into efficient climbing movement. You will also gain an expanded climbing vocabulary. The 4 week format of this class includes one 2 hour class each week and you coming two more times each week to do "homework". You will absolutely see improvement in your climbing ability if you come to every class and commit to the two other homework days per week. There are usually between 5 and 8 people in each class so you will hopefully make some friends along the way. Come ready to climb. This class includes a printed outline, discussion, demonstration, and lots of climbing!
- Members $70 "regular" registration, or ONLY $60 if you sign up early (more than one week before class starts)!
- Nonmembers $140 (includes climbing and gear rental for the month)
- 4 consecutive Wednesdays or Thursdays

Indoor Lead-Climbing Class
If you keep dreaming about the lead wall, sign-up! There are two time formats for this class the two-weekday class and the "One-Shot" Sunday class, either way there are two parts.
In part 1 we start by introducing the equipment you will be using; discuss and practice tying-into your harness and doing double checks; then thoroughly discuss, demonstrate and practice the new skill of lead belay. There is no climbing in part 1 but you will need a harness and a tube style belay device.
Part 2 begins with a brief discussion and a demonstration after which the rest of the time is spent on the wall successfully climbing and finally taking and catching real lead falls. Part 2 is the essential wall time of this class.
This class includes a printed outline for you to have as a reference.
*It is important to note: this class does not certify you to lead unsupervised in the gym, it gives you all the information you need to prepare yourself for the Lead Belay and Lead Climbing Certification Test.
Prerequisites: Orientation, Top-Rope Belay Class, and the demonstrated ability to climb 5.10 with calm and control on top-rope. You must have demonstrated to an instructor your ability to climb 5.10 by the day of class. Talk to us, we don't bite and we want you to take the class. If you have any questions about whether you're ready, its best to find out before rather than during class. Also, this is a matter of safety we won't take your word for it, you have to show us.
